The International Ski Federation said there's still a chance a super-G can be held on the same course Sunday, though temperatures rising to above 10 degrees Celsius (50F) have been affecting the icy slope. ''Unfortunately the chance is quite big we won't succeed,'' FIS women's race director Atle Skaardal said. ''It's all really soft now. We lost five to 10 centimeters of snow http://hodgeyblf.blogs.experienceproject.com/4440982.html over the last http://dewittxmzw.beeplog.com couple of hours. Incredible how fast it goes.'' Temperatures were expected to drop again, but another storm has been forecast for Sunday afternoon, prompting FIS to bring forward the starting time of the super-G by 15 minutes to 11 a.m. (1000 GMT). An even earlier start wasn't possible due to other televised events, including the opening run of a men's World Cup slalom in Adelboden, Switzerland.
